RE: The tariff classification of a women's woven jumper manufactured in India

Dear Mr. Mani:

In your letter dated April 4, 1997, and received by Customs on April 15, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, designated style number 587[LONG], is a women's jumper manufactured from a 100% rayon woven crepe fabric.

This sleeveless garment, which extends to below mid-calf, features a full frontal opening secured by eight plastic buttons, a V-neckline, oversized armholes, a pair of self-fabric adjusting ties at each side at the waist, and a straight, hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for the garment is 6211.43.0066, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, which provides for other women's jumpers, of man-made fibers. The applicable rate of duty is 16.7%, ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 659. Based on international textile trade agreements, products of India are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Part categories are the result of international bilateral agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information available, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report on Current Import Quotas (Restraint Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

The sample is being returned to you, as requested.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.
